Elevating assessment skills using kinesiology and palpation: Arm muscles 3 CEs

Elevating assessment skills using kinesiology and palpation: Arm muscles

  • Students will list movements of the arm
  • Students will identify the origins, insertions, and actions of the arm muscles
  • Students will lead partner through arm muscle movements 
  • Students will identify dysfunction and abnormalities in movement and palpation of the arm muscles

By the end of class, students will demonstrate knowledge of the kinesiology of the area of the body (hip, lower leg, arm, trunk, neck, head and face, and shoulder) that is the focus of that class. They will lead the partner/client through muscle movements to assess variations in the subject’s movement and palpate the muscles of the area of the body discussed. The class will discuss modifications of treatment plans resultant of findings during palpation and kinesiology assessment. 

Students should bring linens.
